A Lonely Lighthouse and its Castaway

We flood the seas in the dark
We flood the seas when it rains
We flood the seas in the smoke
That rolls above the waves
We spend most days leisurely
We struggle a few nights
We survive on bare necessities
That is why we thrive
We guide them ships by the bay
We bring them past the crags
We saved a thousand lives
That is why we strive
To see the capricious seas
That ne’er change
To see the shifting stars and moon
That ne’er vanish
To see the many sails
That ne’er fold
The irony
Everything changes
Yet nothing does
We spent a lifetime in this tower
and no one knew that we weren’t there.
